Greg Koukl, professor and author wrote:
“Reject the postmodern distortion of tolerance and return to the classical view characterized by two principles I learned from Peter Kreeft of Boston College:
Be egalitarian regarding persons.
Be elitist regarding ideas.
“Treat people as equally valuable, but treat ideas as if some are better than others, because they are. To argue that some views are false, immoral, or just plain silly doesn’t violate any meaningful standard of tolerance. Some ideas are true; some are false. Some are brilliant; others are dangerous.”
Real tolerance is about how we treat people, not ideas. Classic tolerance requires that every person be free to express his ideas without fear of abuse or reprisal, not that all views have equal validity, merit, or truth.
